first I apologies for my ignorance of the correct terminology as I explain my question but.......

I am currently attempting to change the blue tube on my sony 1252.


on the new tube........coming from the back of the bell section is a heavy

red wire with the bell at one end and a little silver metal tip on the other.

That metal tip gets plugged into some sort of block which I could only compare to a distributor cap on a car.

Into that distributor cap is three other wires, one from each of the other two tubes and one from the main power block.

my question is this:

when I pulled out the old wire to the old tube.......... the metal tip pulled off the red wire, and is still in the bottom of the hole in the distributor! and I can't get it out!

my question: should I continue to dig around in there trying to pry the tip out or can I just leave it in there and push the new one right in behind it?


If it has to come out......... how do I get it out?


any suggestions appreciated,


mike

Mike,

Push down and turn with a small flat blade screwdriver or small needle-nose pliers or surgical clamp. It has to be removed. Doug

BINGO!


Thanks Doug!


I was afraid to push down on it and thereby force it in even deeper...

I did what you said with a screw driver and it popped out.


for any of you who don't know........ there's a spring at the bottom of the hole, once you break the grip on the side walls, the spring pushes it up!

again .....thanks!
